Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program

Montefiore Einstein’s Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program offers a diverse and comprehensive clinical and didactic curriculum to 17 fellows each year. Our program delivers one- and two-year ACGME-accredited training in all aspects of critical care medicine. 

Why our program could be right for you

From traditional lectures by world-renowned experts to hands-on ultrasound and simulation training sessions, our Critical Care Medicine Fellowship program is high yield, innovative and extensive. Our fellows develop a broad skill set through didactic training, mentored research projects and a balanced rotational curriculum, all on the path to becoming successful modern intensivists.

Moses Campus

Moses Campus is home to our Medical, Surgical, Cardiothoracic and Neuroscience Intensive Care Units (ICUs). In each of these units, our fellows manage treatment plans and procedures while working alongside an attending, residents and critical-care physician assistants. Our fellows sharpen their critical care medicine skills using advanced technologies to care for patients following heart, lung and liver transplants, as well as complex neurosurgery patients. 

Jack D. Weiler Hospital, Einstein Campus

Located on the Einstein Campus, Jack D. Weiler Hospital is adjacent to our Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Our Division of Critical Care Medicine runs a 15-bed Medical Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and a 16-bed combined Cardiothoracic and Surgery ICU.
